Old Faves, New Styles
I have always been a HUGE fan of Gryphon. Not only is their designer, Aimee Cho, nothing short of adorable, but she takes the basic pieces we love and makes them that much more interesting. Does that trench coat seem a little too buttoned up for you? They'll embellish it and make it kind of bad ass. Same goes for that boring boys blazer. They'll add a rockin' fur collar to make it unique and young again. These are definitely investment pieces but considering I can't stop lusting after them, maybe I've met my match. Take this street style photo as inspiration. The shrunken blazer is something that everyone realistically probably should own. It looks amazing with just about everything and is universally flattering. The oversized collar makes it that much more different than everyone else's and makes the ordinary extraordinary. Yet another lust-worthy piece. Well played.
